Cynthia is passionate about developing the field of “Eurythmy as a Personal Practice,” developing a curriculum for people to perceive the creative forces in self and world and learn how to work with them in an aesthetic, harmonizing expressive art. Her capacity to perceive sensitively, speak warmly, and direct effectively allows her to work with a broad spectrum of students. She is adept in performing, healing, and teaching eurythmy for adults and children, and in using it to enhance collaborative group work. She also join her husband to workshops to teach the interface of eurythmy and biodynamic agriculture.
Cynthia travels widely across four continents, to teach eurythmy, lecture on anthroposophical topics, and coach and mentor students. She is well respected for her highly engaging style of teaching.
She has also dedicated her interests towards collaborative work on all fronts. A powerful emerging theme is the work with youth, as she recognizes the necessity for them to find opportunities to use their insights and build the new forms of cooperative work in civic society, while attending to deep spiritual, social and ecological values.
